-a quite, extremely high per capita rate of crime, including violent ones, such as 30,000+ murders, per year;
-the most diverse, numerous, frequent damaging, costly and even, arguably, on a population density basis, deadliest natural and weather disasters upon a single country such as hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, floods, forest fires, freak storms;
-the evil blight of institutionalized, violent racial slavery (economic/labour) “neoslavery”; segregation and discrimination; again the only country to do so domestically, and that at a systematic and “religious” level in the modern, civilized world, if not, outrightly, the entire modern world, in the light to this being institutionalized;
-resounding and stinging defeats and/or stalemates in major, lone and/or predominantly led, military endeavors (i.e, non-coalition) wars, such as: the War of 1812, the Korean War, the Vietnam War (and the solution certainly is not “nuking”, or even “carpet-bombing” or now (euphemistically) ‘shocking and awing’, civilians); not to mention the political/civil “judgement/wisdom” for: the bloodiest civil war in, probably, any national history; among many other such bloody/deadly, lesser, internal armed conflicts;
-the second most cruel, and most detrimental, War Crime in the history of the world, (second to the murder of Jews by Nazis) in the, ala Nazism, simultaneously experimental, Atomic, Terror Bombing of civilians in Nagasaki and Hiroshima (=3rd Place);
-suffering, arguably easily, the most deadly, devastating, costly and impacting paramilitary/terrorist attack in the history of the world in the September 11, 2001 attacks;
-the most evil, vile, “prolific”, “productive”, pervasive, sanctioned, mainstreamed, glamorized, lauded, and most widely consumed, explicitly and implicitly “sinful” industries in the world; probably even, the world combined! (Evidently, the predominant criteria for the banning of a sinful industry is: those that cannot be accurately regulated for taxation purposes!);
-millions of murdered unborn babies each year;
-relative to wealth and pertinent expenditure, physically, the unhealthiest/sickest nation in the world ;
-and it pertinently must also be added, easily/honestly verifiable, many blatant and insidious key fundamental doctrinal/prophetic Biblical errancies and outright falsities.
-And so on, and so on...
All, and each, of these things, namely strife, victory, unwellness, calamities, evil, corruption, national waywardness and “wisdom from above,” the God of the Bible and Creation has repeatedly shown that He can, and will easily forecheck, control, bring about or divert, as the situation requires... but solely when dealing with a deserving nation/people. [Ample supporting Biblical references are omitted.] But since America basely thinks, and religiously believes, that the blessings of the God of the Bible are to be manifested in money and wealth, and that, completely irrespective of how it was achieved, as e.g., expressed by many “thanking of god” by the most decadent of American entertainers, then that is clearly the only criteria that is used in evaluating if ‘God is blessing America.’ However since (1) unequivocally, “necessity is indeed the mother of invention”; (2) the system of capitalism greatly limits how acquired riches are distributed; and (3) capitalism can only exist, thrive and survive if the traits/practices of e.g., greed, selfishness, covetousness, interest imposition (especially compounding interest) are simultaneously, fully and wholly entrenched in an economic system, but as all of these are all strictly condemned by God for people who consider themselves to be His followers, then clearly, the god that America is prayerfully imploring is not “Yahweh/Jehovah”|“Elohim”|“El-Shaddai”|“Jesus Christ”| The Holy Spirit, but..., e.g., “Mammon” and/or his equivalent predecessor: “Baal”! A concrete deduction which actually only means that it simply is man himself who is here trying to act as their own god, since any of these gods are man-made! And, of course, all of this falsehood is directly inspired, and incited, by the Devil himself!
 And, contrary to what has been patronizingly posited on Dec 1, 2010 by a U.S. Representative Steve King (R-Iowa 5th District), the Civil War was not reparation for slavery (nor the ensuing racial marginalization). That was only the “manhunt, arrest, trial, judgement, sentencing and “imprisonment”” process. As the U.S. justice system fully allows for, its corresponding, “compensatory” Civil Trial is still pending... unless of course, that also should not be the Unalienable Right of people who are African-Americans!
 Not to also mention the fact that, in the U.S. Presidential Election scheme, the person who is next in line to the Office of the Presidency, with full/absolute entitlement, is actually a non-democratically selected person, who arguably, was not even (directly/independently) voted for by the people even after Election Day. The Office of Vice President should rightly/logically, i.e., to actually reflect the varying “will of the people,” even within a political party, be given to the runner-up in a political party’s Primaries!?!
 As discussed here, the 2011 US-spear-headed NATO involvement in Libya, moreover to aid “unknown rebels”, was in the economic and strategic self-interest of those Western Allies under a masking guise of ‘humanitarian intervention and democratic liberation.’ Last time I checked the people of Syria were humans and under a dictatorship, and moreover, most evidently, being systematically massacred. So the real issue is that they will not be able to economically benefit from intervening in Syria and prefer, as typical, at any human life cost, to protect Israel, (as if that will help them atone for their various Holocaust-allowing negligence during WWII), because the posited ‘feared potential war eruption in the regions’ [as claimed here [01:05:33ff] on 10-11-12 by the US VP] will clearly/surely/logically not pit the other Arab/Muslim states there against each other...
 Cf. in the Bible Revelation 13:11ff, understood in its properly (i.e., Biblically) interpreted context.
 Adopting, for such a mindset, a falsely rationalized view that ‘it was more important/determinative in the overall (skewed) context of U.S. Social History, to elect a black person as president’, than to focus on what that person actually politically stood for, is, for here a black person, effectively, solely, a form of being further/compoundedly (re)victimized. It is like a person tortured by extreme starvation gladly accepting to knowingly eat cat food! The goal and ideal in a proper democratic election is one to be completely free to elect the person who most closely reflects his/her personal views, values and ideals. Being here thus programmed to think that ‘electing a person because of their color/race somehow even remotely comes to equate this’, is a mocking insult of one’s intelligence, and frankly, in large part, thus literally dehumanizing. Such, effectively, “(blinded) revenge voting” is certainly not a “due justice.”
 It cannot be overlooked in the elections of Sarkozy and Obama that, like with many other things, economics played a very significant, if not determinative, part. On the one hand, Sarkozy in his campaign, ran on an underlying platform of 'economically americanizing/capitalizing the French, more socialist, economy.' As the American economy was, then in 2007, globally perceived as being ‘healthy and relatively thriving’ despite its then growing, unrevealed, tumor, this was a very appealing policy to many, perhaps, just enough. (Case in prior point: France’s electoral revert back to a Socialist Administration in May 2012). On the other hand, after the said "tumor" had now fully manifested itself in the late stages of the 2008 American presidential campaign, starting in ca. mid-August, the presented (more socialist) remedies of Obama were much more appealing to many, again perhaps, just enough, than the: ‘it's not a cancerous tumor, it’s a benign wart’, (i.e., stubborn), effectively continuance, views/policy of John McCain.
